February 2012: Week 1 Report
Thursday, February 09, 2012
Even though I REALLY don't want to post my weigh-in for this week, I'm going to. I keep it real here, yo. :)
Weight on Feb. 1: 177.8
Weight on Feb. 8: 179
GAIN of 1.2 pounds
I may have ended January on a really high note, but I certainly didn't start February well. Since last Wednesday, I have exercised a total of 2 times. The good news is that one of those workouts was a 6.2 mile run! I didn't take any walk breaks, either. Here's a post-run pic of me in all my proud, sweaty glory:
The run took me 74 minutes to do, but that is a typical pace for me, so I wasn't surprised. I loved having my Garmin with me because it helped me keep a consistent pace and beeped whenever I completed a mile. It's such an awesome tool!
The reason I didn't get more workouts in is because I really slacked off on getting up at 5:30. I did wake up early enough to do my Bible reading every morning but one, but I definitely need to get out of the bed by 5:30 like I was in January if I'm going to get those workouts in. And part of the reason I had a harder time getting up early is because I didn't do a good job of abiding by my 10:00 p.m. curfew, which made sleeping in all the more tempting. Discipline has such a domino effect. Slip up on one thing, and it causes you to slip up in other areas, too.
I've given myself a stern inner talking to, however, and I WILL post a loss for next week's weigh-in, even if it's half a pound!
